It's appalling each time I use
public transport to go my office early morning. It causes frustration and
disappointment to see the people/public feel hesitant and are reluctant to ask
for their rights. Following are the few of the issues I have been facing ever
since I moved to Pakistan and started using the public transport.
1) Violation of the traffic rules by the drivers by not following the assigned
2) Violation of the traffic rules by stopping the wagon/bus wherever the drivers
wish or convenient for them.
3) No fixed fair/ticket and the reluctant to give you the change back by
pretending the conductor doesn't carry/have the coins to give your change back.
4) No proper time at each bus stop and sometimes it causes an undue delay
5) Over speed
I spotted few of the above mentioned issues while travelling in the public
transport in Islamabad and would like to highlight them for people's awareness.
The reason I spotted these issues that I have always been concerned about "Human
Rights" and believe that it's totally in our control to ask for our rights as
the old saying goes well" You have to snatch your rights" . What I've been
observing is that the "Human Rights" violation is pervasive but still if you
compare the "West" people still raise voices against the injustices, corruption,
racism, cruelty and so many other things that are against humanity,but what
saddened me the most is that Pakistan in particular has always been the victim
and no positive steps are taken with a pragmatic approach to sort these issue
In a nutshell, we human beings are social animals and have rights, lets not be
the victims of the injustices.
